Spiritual discipline is the way one acts on their spiritual path. Many grow in spiritual knowledge sharing it with others in words both spoken and written. Lofty words of loving ways of being pour forth from the mouths to change the world as if words alone are enough. It is in the actions that are taken demonstrating their words that change the world. It is easy to stay your path when others agree with you in your words and do not call you to service. When life lays on you its hardships and concerns your kind may stop your journey along the path or choose an easier path.
Many see that which is in their lives and decide that they must choose one or the other. It is in these times one must hold true to their spiritual path. Only the spiritual discipline of the soul put into action can bring a master to greatness. For the master that would let the vision of a return of Eden guide them can bring about such a world. It is spiritual discipline that takes away the choice of one or the other and gives in return that the only choice is both. More often then not this discipline that you hold your self to will gain more then it will cost you.
